Excerpt from book: initted to it; as a body moving in great ocean rivers, as the Gulf stream, it also bears these materials forward to certain and well determined regions. It thus arranges and moulds the ocean's bottom from the matter committed to it by the terrestrial rivers. By mechanical force the waves break down the strong rocky barriers of coasts, as well as those shores which1 are girded with sand. The ocean then is a moulder and distributer of all the plastic matter committed to its bosom. In fine, moving water, under whatever name it has received, whether rivers, waves, tides, or ocean currents, is both destructive and constructive, according to the conditions and circumstances of the moving mass. The changes of temperature which a country undergoes, and the amount of rain which it receives, produce important changes in the physical condition of its surface. The observations which have been hitherto recorded are however too few to become the basis of important geological reasoning; yet they are sufficiently so to require some notice in this place. The following facts are recorded in the periodicals of the day, and are among the most important of this class: Mean Ruin Latitude. Place. an. temp, in inched.
